Some key candidates were the NDA Assembly Speaker Uday Narayan Chaudhary, a RJD leader Shakil Ahmed Khan who was competing with JDU’s Vinod Yadav, JDU Chhedi Paswan against RJD’s Niranjan Ram, a former Union minister Kanti Singh against the BJP incumbent Rameshwar Prasad, Awadesh Narain Singh against RJD’s Iliyas Hussain and Anil Kumar against RJD’s Bagi Kumar Verma.
The final round's important race was that of a senior RJD leader Jagdanand Singh's son Sudhakar Singh, who was a candidate for the BJP against the RJD’s Ambika Yadav. Singh campaigned against his son saying: "Sudhakar is my biological son but Ambika is my political heir." The JDU’s Mahabali Singh's son Dharmendra also contested for the opposition RJD. Other family affairs were the JDU's Sushil Singh's older brother Sunil Singh, who was competing for the RJD.

Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said his party has nothing in common with its coalition partner the BJP, and that the decision not to have the Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi campaign in Bihar was made by the BJP alone and not him, after a rift over Modi's earlier visit and the return of funds from Gujarat for relief work following the 2008 Bihar flood. He also said there was no possibility of having an alliance with the INC.
The BJP attacked the INC and its former allies, saying they would lose the election because "There is nothing but [a] NDA wave perceptible in Bihar and Nitish Kumar will once against return to power with [a] two-thirds majority." Their coalition partner and CM Kumar also attacked the INC as being responsible for Bihar's "backwardness."
The JDU's Sharad Yadav attacked the INC's General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, who was campaigning for the party's Bihar campaign: "What does Rahul Gandhi know about politics? Somebody wrote on the paper and gave it to you and you read it out. We are an unfortunate country. He should be thrown into the Ganga." He also blamed Gandhi for "indulging in dynastic politics."
Gandhi also controversially said that "Aapki Congress party gareebon ki party hai, aapki party hai."["Your Congress party is the party of the poor, your party."]
The media suggested that the ruling NDA was likely to have a slight increase in seats from the previous election. The NDA previously won just one seat in Buxar but looked to make bigger gains in this election from the district with the JDU’s Dawood Ali facing the JDS' Dadan Pahalwan. The constituencies of Rohtas, Kaimur, Aurangabad and Gaya were expected to tilt towards the NDA.
October 2010 opinion poll:
|Party||Seats Contested||Star News-Nielsen||IBN-Week|
|Janata Dal (United)||141||120||61-67|
|Bharatiya Janata Party||102||50||49-55|
|Rashtriya Janata Dal||168||28||70-76|
|Lok Janshakti Party||75||6||7-13|
|Indian National Congress||243||22||23-29|
Following the BJP's issuance of tickets for the election, its Bihar president, C.P. Thakur, was summoned to the parties national headquarters to explain his decision. He had not opted to campaign during the elections and resigned from his post in the party after his son, Vivek Thakur, was not given representation on the party ticket.
A low turnout was expected in the naxal-affected districts, according to the election commission. This followed a naxal boycott call in several districts. The first five phases saw an average of 52% voter turnout. The final phase recorded 51% despite concerns that it would have a low turnout and be a "real test if the 'Nitish factor'" worked following CM Nitish Kumar's appeal: "Good voter turnout alone is point to ponder in this phase. Crowd presence at several meetings had been good indicator though."
Two days before the second phase of voting naxals triggered a land mine in Sheohar district killing six policemen. As a result, the district's voting centres would close 2 hours earlier. The attack was seen as a resurgence in naxal activity after a lull due to its timing during an election. Though the naxals had called for a boycott of the polls, the second phase ended largely unscathed.
On the fourth phase of voting more bombs were set off. In the morning Naxals were responsible for a bomb blast near a bridge on the Chakai-Jamui road in the Batia jungle. Later on "anti-social elements" set off another bomb in the Danapur assembly constituency wounding 2 people. On the eve of the fifth phase of voting, the naxals called for a 24-hour bandh. During the bandh, security services attempted to defuse a bomb planted by the naxals, however 2 bomb disposal personnel were killed.
Days before the final phase of voting a naxal boycott was enforced with a bombing of a bridge and another attack that killed near the Chenari assembly constituency, which was due to vote during the final phase. On the final day of voting 1 person was killed and 2 were injured when bomb exploded in a cinema hall, 2 others were also killed trying to defuse a bomb. A bomb plated to disrupt the final day of voting in Aurangabad district was found the following day, however, the police apparently left the live bomb unattended; as a result 8 children were killed when it exploded and villagers blamed the police, following which the district magistrate arrived and announced compensation of Rs.100,000 for each of the dead.
Areas in Sonbhadra and Chandauli districts in Uttar Pradesh, near the border with Rohtas and Bhabhua districts in Bihar, were sealed due to the final phase of voting. The Imamganj constituency, which is apparently "simmering [with] tension" over naxal activity was seen as a security challenge. It also had a quiet campaign. Shiv Shankar Singh, a confidant of the Bihar Assembly Speaker, Uday Narayan Chaudhary, of the constituency said: "There will be no election campaigning in the interiors. Who will take the risk? Public meetings were held only in block headquarters of Dumaria, Imamganj and Banker Bazar." There were also posters calling for poll boycott in the days leading up to the poll. Some reports, however, said the constituency is safer now than a decade ago.
Despite the violence, the Chief Election Commissioner S.Y. Quraishi said this was "the most peaceful election ever [held in Bihar]."
Electoral code violations
First information reports were filed against the head of the RJD, Lalu Prasad Yadav, and his wife Rabri Devi for violating the Election Commission of India's model code of conduct for having brought their own security personnel into the polling booth in Dinapur of Digha constituency in the provincial capital Patna. A FIR was also filed against Bihar's JDU Transport Minister Ram Nandan Singh for having taken two guards into the polling booth while casting his vote in the Parbatta constituency of Khagaria district.
